I love the way our hunting traditions get passed down from generation to generation.  That’s how it happened in my life.  Both of my Grandfathers hunted.  My Dad and all of my Uncles hunted.  I started hunting at a very early age, myself.  Some of my greatest memories are of hunts that I shared as a very young boy with my Dad and those guys.  I have proudly passed the hunting lifestyle on to my children.  This story is about a recent turkey hunt in Florida that I shared with two of my kids, Zach and Anna.  It was a fun and successful hunt, but a chance meeting after we tagged-out left me with a sad feeling.

When I was filming my television show, MacMillan River Adventures for Outdoor Channel, I was blessed to hunt all over the world.  I have had the opportunity to kill all four of the American turkey sub-species, but my kids have not.  Zach and Anna decided that they wanted to hunt all the sub-species this Spring, starting with the Osceola down in Florida.  I just couldn’t possibly let them have all the fun, so I decided to go.

Featuring Ted Nugent & Keith Mark

Keith & Ted Talks Cuz Strickland from Mossy Oak! 

Ted was Hunter Nation’s “Ambassador Of The Month” in April and in this episode he passes the baton to Ronnie “Cuz” Strickland from Mossy Oak fame for the month of May. Ted breaks down the efforts and impacts of conservation minded heroes like Cuz and all of the American hunters who get involved and make a difference. Co-host Keith Mark puts a spotlight on the state of Maine and their antiquated Sunday hunting ban and calls on Ted to help rally hunters and his friend from Maine, Tucker Carlson to eliminate this anti-hunting rule. Tune in to hear Ted’s plan to right that wrong and for your chance to win a signed copy of Ted’s new album.

Kansas City – Led by Rep. Tom Tiffany, a coalition of members of U.S. Congress sent a letter to the Department of the Interior Secretary Deb Haaland, encouraging her to appeal the radical decision by an activist California judge that restored Endangered Species Act protections for the gray wolf in most states, despite the wolf being fully recovered.

“Activist judges in California do not know better than America’s farmers, ranchers and families,” said Hunter Nation President and CEO Luke Hilgemann. “Responsible predator management is successful when local conservation and hunting leaders come together to develop a plan that works for that community. Thank you to those in Washington who still have some commonsense.”

In September 2021, Hunter Nation filed a brief defending hunters in this case. You can read the press release from that brief here.

Hunter Nation is officially launching our Hunt The Vote 2022 campaign today! In our first Hunt the Vote initiative in 2020, Hunter Nation received more than 200,000 pledges to vote and encouraged more than 400,000 hunters to vote. This year, we are aiming to secure 500,000 pledges from around the country.

You’ll hear more about this during the event, but our hunting lifestyle is under attack. From Virginia to Wisconsin to Colorado and Arizona, anti-hunting forces are uniting to kick us out of the woods and trample on our values of God, family, and country. We must fight back in force and one of the best ways to do that is with your vote!

Watch Recap Now!

We are proud to officially kick off Hunt The Vote with a virtual event on Facebook with rock and roll legend Ted Nugent, Hunter Nation founder Keith Mark, and Hunter Nation CEO Luke Hilgemann.
